Attention Chicago. I'll be performing two standup sets there this weekend (Fri and Sun). Details:
1. Friday 9pm Lincoln Lodge. Did this show last time I was in town and it was lotsa fun. Great place w/ huge beers. Fyi, a friend told me this about the show: "Sometimes it gets really packed and they sell out early, so probably best to buy tickets from their site." Here's link for tix. Show starts at 9pm. i'll be up around 10:00 PM - maybe later.
2. Sunday 8 pm @ Town Hall Pub (halsted btwn roscoe and buckingham). Robin Williams dropped in and performed on this show last week. Nice of him to stretch 'em out for me.
